  1. Past hour
  2. The noise will likely be because it was cycling rapidly causing the pressure switch to chatter. Sounds awful when it does this. You can't help but know something is not right. The small pumps should sound rapid but smooth as opposed the the slow quite Sureflo's Even my 100psi Sureflo when I was using it couldn't cope with 25m PU pole hose on full power even with 2mm pencil jets. It was fine with 6mm ID microbore but not the 5.5mm of the PU.
  3. Using WFP. Your body will adapt to the demands you put on it as you go along as long as you give it enough fuel to recover. I wouldn’t worry about eight lifting at all if you’ve not done it before. You’d only be putting extra demands on yourself whilst you’re still adapting to wfp.

    Quoting first house for Clearing

    I would try to stick to the £130 as you will be slower as it's first real go. Obviously don't tell custy that She will be happy as you are charging lower end of your quote and you will have gained experience. You may well get recommendations from her or maybe even ask for a FaceBook/Google review - suggest to her that she doesn't mention price as you charged her the price for a valued customers not any person you don't know.

  6. Door knocking is best put the time and you will yield the results fast, spoke to another windy the other day who I only see once in a while, I don't canvass he does I have 20 odd houses on one new build estate he has gone from zero to 150 in recent years, he has a good manner and is well presented he is on every new job with door knocking, he wanted loads of work locally so he could ditch some big commercial over an hour away and has employed for a a year or so now so is doing really well, people want to know who is going to be cleaning their windows so a face to face works well.

    Moerman blue rubber

    On my 3rd nxt-r rubber, 1 has been good, 1 has been ok and 1 has been a bit sh*t but hopefully just a bad one in the batch. Lovely glide to it initially, does last longer and doesn't bleed like soft rubber in the heat or direct sun. Definitely a medium soft imo. Squeaky and catching the glass a bit quicker than I would like but I will need to keep using it in different situations, temperatures etc to properly gauge it. Usually I use soft rubber, preferably Ettore master rubber as it has amazing glide, love it but doesn't last long and is expensive but by far and away the best soft rubber on the market imo. I never could really get along with hard rubber as I found you have to put too much pressure on the glass which is not good from an rsi point of view over time & also found hard rubber skips on the glass too. I've tried so many different brands and always hated them. Don't want to give a full opinion on the nxt it just yet but decent so far. Kind of a useless review lol sorry

    Left controller on...

    Hi The Spring manufactured V11 pump controller can be left in DE for extended periods without damage to the pump. As previous post the hoses and connectors are under pressure and just checking these are not leaking is a good idea. While the controller has the pump in DE current draw is next to nothing so there is no load on the pump motor. Re the battery being at 40% capacity if its a lead acid leisure battery most battery manufacturers recommend not going below 50%. The battery would benefit form an occasional bench charge with a mains charger as this helps keep the lead cells in good condition. The following link looks at battery discharge - recharge cycles https://www.progressivedyn.com/service/battery-basics/

    Citrosol for UPVC

    We use Virosol which I think is very similar, diluted 10-1 works well rinses easily and removes most things .

    Van fault help, any ideas?

    it’s starting first turn in the morning again but the garage could find no fault, I can only think they moved something inadvertently because it works again but I have no confidence that when the cold weather returns so will the problem. glad it’s starting, frustration not knowing what’s the underlying issue.

    Moerman ( again!!!)

    Yes, I’ve been using it for a couple of months now. Good slip, very durable. Doesn’t stay baby blue for long but that doesn’t effect the performance. I’d class it as a medium rubber. Excellent.

    cement board cladding clean

    Depends what the dirt is if it’s green with algi or mould hypo will work well if it’s a carbinatious dirt it won’t , virisol or similar would work better for that

    Upto 50 customers

    Its not much, £65. The 'funniest' bit is it was a one-off as they needed someone to clean the show homes for an event. Turns out my mate whos a window cleaner does them regularly every 2 weeks, and last time out they accidently paid him twice yet im still waiting. I'm thinking about maybe turning up with him to help him clean and waiting to see the look on the guys face when he works it out

    Newer Van Options

    Has this site changed?

    Nope not changed. You can still browse by trad etc just go into that specific forum area.
  22. I haven't got a costing here as that van belongs to my lad and he bought it, paid for it and collected it. It was 3 or 4 years ago now and my memory doesn't go back that far. It was a case of contacting a fiberglass specialist (this one was in Newcastle Upon Tyne) and asking for the correct fiberglass mat, the resin (I 'm 90% sure it was polyester resin) acetone thinners and the right top coat. We opted for blue non slip. We also ordered a few tools as well. The only thing is that it has to be done in summer. We did it in late autumn and we battled to get the resin to cure because of low temperatures that caught us out, even doubling the amount of hardener suggested. We used 450g chop strand matting. https://www.ecfibreglasssupplies.co.uk/ There are quite a number of windies who have fiberglassed their vans. Hopefully some will come on. I remember one purchased a kit off Ebay. @Mark Munrohas a Youtube video up on his van he did. He used general purpose resin. We didn't fiberglass over the wood; we fiberglassed directly onto the metal floor.

    ultimate high reach pole

    This is why I think best for me to stick with my slx22 for vast majority of my work, and just add on extensions for odd 3 floor high windows and solar panels, and those super max's would prob work better with that weight.

    Price per square meter

    I stick to £3 a sq metre and sand for free. Usually get all of the jobs I quote for but I remember this old guy trying to get me lower and I through in the sanding for free and he still tried to get me lower. It was only a £200 job and he was getting 3 quotes for the PW job. I don't really like working for folk like that so I'm glad I never got the job. Its great when one has plenty of work on and you can just walk away.

    First Gutter Clearing Problem

    To be honest it’s practice , just keep doing what others have said. You will develop a skill for getting stuff out it’s like driving a car you gradualy get used to all the controls it’s the same with the vac wriggle it around, trie a narrower end , just keep plugging away Ime sure it will come out. Ladders are needed now and again though .its better to have problems with your house than a customers
  26. Hello all. I wanted to get an upholstery cleaner / carpet cleaner for some time but didn't want to spend silly money on new just so I could clean work van seats and the odd emergency spillage stain removal job. I was looking at the karcher and Numatic George machines but thought i could easily build my own for less. Build details Homebase Ozito 1250w wet vac Numatic clone handheld upholstery tool A few metres of clear 8mm hose Generic 12v flow controller Geneic 12v 50 psi diaphragm pump Tesco basic white chopping board 12v 3 amp power supply unit Black ABS project enclosure The benefits of my system is that the upholstery cleaner parts all work alongside a standard dry & wet vac so I have a fully serviceable and usable vac without all the upholstery tooling and hoses permanently attached to it. So I can use it with my chow saw for sawdust or suck up water from a washing machine etc Total build cost £100 build time one hour
